CHI Signs Preferred Vendor Agreement With NCR
Catholic Health Initiatives has signed a preferred vendor agreement with NCR Corporation, a technology company, for self-service kiosks.
The NCR MediKiosk technology is designed to eliminate the need for staff to re-enter patient demographic and insurance information into hospital information systems, resulting in fewer claim denials and improved cash flow, said NCR.
Chakri Toleti, vice president of healthcare industry marketing at NCR, said: "Catholic Health Initiatives's (CHI's) selection of NCR reinforces its commitment to providing exceptional patient care. Automating the check-in process can benefit patients through shorter wait times and reduced paperwork."
